A new project has been announced in the WetCanvas! project system!

Title: Batik Watercolor
Project Leader: KathyJB
Relative Difficulty: Easy
Type Restrictions: Painting
Medium: Watercolor paints
Subject: Abstract
Days open for signups: Always
Maximum participants allowed: Unlimited

Description:

If you would like to learn a new technique that works well in watercolor and get some unusual results as you paint along please join my Batik Watercolor Project.

I have included basic instrusctions here to get you started as well as links of examples in the forum that you will hopefully find informative as you try the simple technique of waxing and painting.

Supplies needed are beeswax and paraffin wax. Also needed is plain white paper or plain news print. And an old iron. The mixture of the two waxes determines the flexibility of the wax when it cools and will also determine whether it will crackle and leave a batic like effect or a clear resist without any color seeping thru the area we just painted. I use beewax and tea-lite wax. I use a tealite to heat my beeswax in a wax warmer. when the tealite burns down the wick I pour the melted wax into the beeswax and my mixture stays warmed and ready to apply. I use the wax warmer (it is used for fragrant wax to scent a room) but you can use a fry pan or a hot plate as long as it has a temperature setting of 200 degrees. You can use empty tea-lite containers for your wax mixture or a mini muffin pan. All you need now is a paint brush or two that you dont mind sacrificing to the wax god (smile) and your paint and paper. Hope to see you there.


Instructions:
I lay a watercolor wash just like I would if I were begining a watercolor painting but my next layer will be a glaze of hot wax. Let the paint dry. Next we will paint in this case the snowman or rather negative paint him and some faded trees on the opposite side of the snowman.
After I have painted over a color I want to save, I paint the rest of my painting. It can be as simple as a dragon fly or as complex as Alans cityscapes. Repeat a layer of wax over any color you want to save. Sometimes I paint the entire image with wax. After I have completed the painting of the image I removed the painting from the board and begin to fold it like a fan .... some of the wax will crinkle and crack. Keep folding and then fold two or three times so you have a small wadded square. Let it set with a rubberband around it a little while to create texture on the paper. After you take off the band and open it up you will see where the wet paint has run and scored into the paper. This creates some wonderfull effects. In the case of the mandalla with the deep blue (see link) I painted indigo and let it seep into places where the wax didn't cover the art work. I then painted wax on a few more areas and repeated the folding technique.
Its up to you as to how many times you repeat the process.
After I am satisfied with my resist process I set my iron to medium.

I layer white computer paper on a slab of smooth wood. I place the painting on the layer of paper and cover it with 0ne or two sheets of paper
I then iron slowly and let the wax melt and sink into the overlay of paper... it takes a while to lift the wax off the painting and I remove the paper several times and replace it so I am not getting wax on the iron, When all the wax is gone your painting is finished.

So thats it.
Hope you'll stay and join me in my first project and discussion,
please ask questions, PM me or email me at [email protected]
Thanks for staying with me this far,
Kathy

Hi Kathy, if I can get the materials together, I'm going to give this a try. Do you mix the 2 waxes, or use different ones on different layers? I used to do batik years ago, sosomewhere I should still have some of the equipment - a tjanting tool for people that work in a linear way would be useful.

Sue

KathyJB
12-12-2003, 09:30 AM
Hi Sue,
Yes yos you mix about 2/3 beeswax to 1/3 pariffin in the real reciepe but I play with that mix alot.
I used a tjanting for the first time last week ... boy what a thing that is... I have more control with a brush tho hence the project. If you fing your tools do show some work with the tjanting as that is what i intend to use as i get more proficient at this method.
Thanks Sue love your pointers and expect more:)

Thank you Alan,
Do you have candle wax?
Can use that if your want to give it a whirl... parifin or white candle wax works well if you dont krinkle or fold the paper where as the beeswax is more giving and folds with it somewhat,
So glad your involved and commenting... your support is appreciated

Welcome Zyffyr, As you can see accidents are also welcome here (smile) I was painting a petroglyph but the mix of wax I used didnt hold my shapes as well. I am however still happy with the design just not the contrasting values.
welcome andnhappy painting!!!

I have put off this intriguing project until I visit my daughter at Christmas. The smoke alarms at the home where I live are very sensitive and have gone off just with candles. My daughter bought me some soy wax, supposedly very flexible. Have you tried this? It is used to make candles in containers, I guess because it isn't strong enough to make free-standing candles. Is flexible good? Sounds like it, but I'll know better if all goes as planned this week. Looks like fun.

Just don't use too much paraffin cause it will be greasy.
When I was teaching middle school we used straight paraffin and I coulnd't get all the grease out.
on fabric. I've never used it on paper.

KathyJB

Good Point Gaart,
I have to say i found out the hard way that it doesnt remove as easily off the paper either... So I returned to the beeswax mixture,

Where do you get beeswax? Is it expensive? If I can't find that is there something else that will be suitable? I have plenty of tea lights and old candles. I found an old iron this weeken to use.

KathyJB
12-31-2003, 05:57 PM
kahlanne, I found beeswax at my local art and graphics supply store. If you have a michaels they should have it. Also Pearle online has it as does Dick Blick and Daniel Smith both can be found on line.
Let me know if you have any trouble finding this. Do practice with the candles and tea lites you have but dont expect to use your brushes again for paint:))
Good Luck and thanks for your interest,
Kathy

I was just wondering if you could tell me what brushes you would suggest that I have for batiking. I am new to painting so I only have a few and don't want to use them. Also do they need to be any particular kind of brushes?

sometimes places that have aromatherapy stuff for sale. Beeswax is used in lotions and creams. But it might be too expensive.

This is a quote from my post above-- that had a quote that didn't pertain to what I said... I guess I just clicked on the wrong button.

Anyway. Gudrun it is good to see you here.

KathyJB
01-01-2004, 01:24 PM
kahlanne,
I started to reply a while back but aol booted me off (frown).
You should have a small flat brush and a round pointed brush.
I purchased some tanjings like the chinese use but its not really necessary... a hardware store might also sell beeswax for a cheaper price and I know if you type beeswax in a google search you will find several options.
I can't really suggest anything for the brushes except get some cheap ones as they will be ruined except for further wax painting.

Gaart thanks also for your input it is appreciated... well i am off to finish a small batic peice since christmas and new years got me offtrack in my painting... good luck everyone,
Kathy

I couldn't find beeswax at Hobby Lobby today. They were just out and it will be the end of next week before they have any in. I decided to buy a tub of soy wax. It was cheap and I could always make candles out of it if it doesn't work out. I also bought a "cheap" set of brushes just for this project. Got my iron so I should be all set. I will give it a go either tomorrow or the next day.

thanks kahlanne you were right... I was surprised that I was able to glaze over the batic as usually the wax spreads out and you cant do it easily, I am glad you are getting supplies as well,
Kathy

froggee I would like to see an example if you would do one,,, there are so many ways to do this... I love to mask out so I can just run my brush over the whole thing with darks,

I like this one alot Cmwynn, you wont ever have total control of the image thats the fun of batik or any masking experiment. Unless its really professional and you want it perfect but thats another project. I like cause and effect.
Good one on the fish here,

I noticed a discussion of where to get the waxes. www.dharmatrading.com carries pans of premixed " batik wax" , parafin/ bee's wax so you don't have to figure out the mix your self. If you are not doing large amounts, it's the way to go.

Cheers,

Li

01-02-2004, 09:36 AM
Cmwynn, I really like the work you did. The blue one doesn't have as much of a focal point but the fish one is fabulous even with the wax splotches. I hope I can do half that well.

Lisilk, thanks for the link to that site. I will give it a thought if mine turns out good. Should 1lb last a while with this project? Seems it would last a lifetime.

01-02-2004, 12:33 PM
Couple of questions for you. I tried the batiking twice now and am unhappy with the results. They aren't horrible but not at all what i expected. So now I have a few ????s. First of all I chose a single large dragonfly as my focal point. I painted a yellow wash all across the paper then waxed the dragonfly. Then when I tried adding the paint on top of that but it wouldn't adhere to the wax. Should I have not "painted" the entire dragonfly with wax? You mention that you shaded yours after adding the wax. How did you do that? Also, you mention wrinkling the paper, do you have trouble with yours tearing? Mine tore in two areas but once it was ironed it doesn't appear so. I did my second one and it tore while I was ironing by sticking to the top paper. i will try to get a picture of mine this afternoon.

Very nice. Do you paint the flowers first then wax over them? The only batik I have ever done is on fabric. I assume that paper is basically the same way. ?

Kahlanne, I might be wrong but the paint isn't supposed to adhere to the wax. The point of the wax is to use it like a resist. However the cracks in the wax are what adds the neat cracks and stuff...
Am I right???? Anyone?
Don't know about the tearing? And you would shade after you iron off the wax????

You may not have gotten what you were looking for, but the cracks show up beautifully and that's the point of using batik.

Yes Gaart I painted the flowers first and then painted wax over the painted image......by the way glad you like the flowers

kahlanne Gaart is right you paint the image first... there is a wip in the forum and a link to it on the main project page. I usually do a wash as you did... let it dry then paint my image... then let that dry and then I paint the wax over the main images in your case dragonflies. sometimes I splatter the wax or make a shape or two just to see how the crackling will occur. I then do another darker wash and fold the paper while it is still wet and then fold it back and forth gently and rubber band it.
I run it under some water to fade the paint in some places...you can wrap it round with rubber bands for about ten minutes or so then carefully undo it. you can let it dry or wax more areas or take it off..I use the iron and several pieces of white paper to get the wax out it shouldnt tear if you do it slowly and keep changing out the white paper (I use cheap computer paper)
I hope this helps and that you do try again

Li, I have some towels that I want to dye so I typed in fabric dyes into google. The very first name that popped up was dharmatrading. It is awesome!!! I ordered my dye and fixatives and a couple of silk shirts to paint on.

This is my first attempt. I used the wax as a resist for the highlights on the bottles. Then painted the scene.. Added more wax and then glazed. I then ironed off the wax and painted more. The wax didn't crack as I had wished. I think I had too much beeswax in the mix. I will add more paraffin to it and try again.

Thank you for the compliment. I like the "impressive" Never been called that before.. My head may swell. :)

I actually forgot to crinkle my painting till the last minute nm this latest peice but will remember next time... I limited the wax this time too to get more contrast oh ands I shall post the painting again so you know what i am talking about LOL.

Gaart I used a tjanting tool. the one I use I have only had for a month and whoee is it tricky... itds electric...I havnt quite figured how to use the traditional one yet. I heat my beeswax in a tart warmer so I dont have a electric hotplate to keep the regular tjanting warm enough for melted wax...when i poured wax into it it was instantly too cool to spread.
I am also doing a silk scarf tho not yet using a tjanting.... jusyt a prush and wax... maybe I will post that wewnt finished also if your interested.... keep on painting every one and thanks for your kindness and suggestions,
